Homecomings.

My sweet friend Erin just returned from China where she, her husband, Bob, and their daughter, Mollianne, welcomed their newest family member, Meisey Faith.

I first met Erin when our husbands worked together several years ago, and we reconnected through her blog last spring. Erin was the inspiration for my blog.

One of Erin's sweet friends, Robyn, kindly invited me to join their group for dinner near the airport to welcome Erin and her family home after they flew in from China.

What a privilege it was to meet precious Meisey in person after having waited and prayed for her for years and followed her family's journey to her over the past few weeks. Almost as exciting was getting to meet Erin's fun friends, Robyn, Valerie and Christie, whom I had previously known only through their blogs. We hugged, laughed and conversed like we had known each other for years.

Thank you, Robyn, for so kindly including me in this joyous occasion. And thank you, Blogger and Erin, for introducing me to such a lovely group of ladies. Most of all, welcome home, dear Meisey! I don't know who is luckier: you to be joining such a wonderful, loving family or them to be blessed with the cutest, sweetest baby I've seen in a long time.

It was so great to officially "meet" you too! I updated my blog with some more pictures including a super cute one of Mollianne and Dots. Hope to see you again very soon!

Erin said...

I cannot even tell you how excited I was to see your smiling face at the restaurant! It was probably the neatest surprise of the day! You are such a dear friend and I'm so lucky to have you in our lives.

Much love to you!

P.S. I "stole" all of your pictures. :-)
